Definition

A commonly used phrase used by elders to lovingly describe decades past.

Usage

Devika's grandfather Shankaran describing the times he grew up in.

" In the good old days we used to walk to school. There was no pollution, no traffic, no crowds. People were polite and none of these present rascal politicians ruled the country. It was a slow life but we had peace of mind.

Not like the rush nowadays when everyone wants to run away to Gulf or earn well in IT jobs here to buy three flats, 6 kg gold and and wide screen plasma TV for every room.

What a life, I say, we had those days."
